Blazing World, an American Amber Ale by Modern Times Beer

Share This Review

Blazing World is an American Amber Ale brewed by Modern Times Beer, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a can.

Appearance

The ale pours a somewhat cloudy, honey brown and is topped by a thick cap of off-white foam. Its head reduces slowly and leaves an abundance of chunky lace on the glass.

Aroma

The label describes the amber as being “hoppy and dank” and that’s immediately telling from the aroma. A trio of hops imparts an earthy scent that’s mixed with grass and pine.

Flavor

A touch of malt opens the palate and then swiftly shifts into hop overdrive. Nelson Sauvin, Simcoe, and Mosaic hops pile on flavors of pine and juicy citrus. Two Row, Munich, and Midnight Wheat balance the taste with toasty bread and toffee. The tasting finishes with a lingering bite of pine and lemon that’s undercut by a caramel sweetness.

Mouthfeel

The feel is slightly sticky with a medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall

Blazing World has a biting palate that’s more closely resembles a Red IPA. Thus, it’s overly-hopped as an Amber, but its taste is quite wonderful, and any mischaracterization can be forgiven. High marks all around. This is one hell of a beer.
